Recognizing the importance and value of a digital disaster kit, SanDisk Corporation is committed to supporting the American Red Cross and helping to promote digital preparedness. March is Red Cross Month, and SanDisk has generously committed a donation of up to $250,000 when consumers purchase one of their SanDisk products through Amazon.com or smile.amazon.com. As a global leader in flash storage solutions, it is SanDisk’s mission to enrich people's lives through digital storage anytime, anywhere—so supporting the Red Cross and promoting digital preparedness is a natural fit. SanDisk and the Red Cross encourage everyone to create a digital disaster kit to keep copies of identification, lists of emergency contacts, credit cards, insurance, mortgage information along with cherished memories and photos.
At Wawa, one of our most time-honored and important partnerships is the one we share with the American Red Cross. In fact, for more than 20 years, we’ve been proud to support the critical work of the Red Cross through blood drives and a variety of in-store fundraising activities, events, and donations. From raising and providing funds for disaster relief to staffing blood drives with Wawa volunteers, the Wawa family works to make this meaningful collaboration stronger each year. Now in 2016, through The Wawa Foundation, we’re thrilled that our support has the potential to have greater reach and impact. In addition to Wawa’s annual blood drives, from February 29 through April 17, The Wawa Foundation will be dedicating a portion of in-store charity collections to the Red Cross, during which time the Red Cross will be featured on our coffee clutches. At Wawa, we play many important roles in our communities, and our partnership with the Red Cross is one of the critical ways in which we connect at a deeper level with our customers and with the communities that we serve.
